Product Description

The acclaimed Aston Origin condenser microphone is now available in a sleek, special-edition colour. This black-finished Origin also comes with the excellent Aston Swiftshield pop filter and a shock mount so you can get your recordings sounding crisp and clear.

Aston Microphones pride themselves on being a British brand: both designing and building high quality, hand crafted and affordable microphones in the UK.

Everything from first design to final assembly is done in this country, handmade by a team of some of the finest engineers and craftsmen in Britain. Each mic has been meticulously developed by a team of British Engineers with the help and advice from over 30 UK Music industry professionals. Aston dare to go against the norm, pushing the boundaries of technology and design to create something completely new from the ground up.

The results are visually stunning. The Origin Mic may look like a piece of modern art, however aesthetics are only part of the story. Each element has been meticulously designed to create better performance, better durability and better usability.

Origin

The Origin is a high performance cardioid condenser microphone using a 1" gold evaporated capsule. It's a workhorse mic that you could stick in front of most instruments, but particularly excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. It's built with some of the best components that you find in expensive boutique microphones.

The result is a direct, smooth and intimate sound that's the perfect recipe for a natural and transparent recording.

Wave Form Mesh Head

One of the most striking features of the Origin is it's waveform mesh head. This shock resistant band offers unprecedented protection to your microphones delicate capsule and components. Mesh heads have always been the first line of defence for your mic, but a heavy knock will at the least leave an unsightly disfiguring to the mesh itself. With the wave-form mesh, the head will distort to take the energy away from a heavy knock, but can be easily returned to it's normal position, without any damage at all.

Built-in Pop Filter

Aston Microphones also feature a built in pop filter that's even better than most filters on the market. It's random weave allows your vocals to pass unhindered, whilst stopping plosives dead. It also shields against electromagnetic radiation.

The other great thing about having a filter integrated into your mic is that it offers automatic protection from the outside world. its stainless steel mesh cage protects from unwanted moisture, grime and dust and can even be removed from the mic and washed; ensuring your mic will be clean and fresh and last a very long time!

In-built shock absorption

Each element inside the Origin has been designed with it's own shock absorbent design, meaning that the mic is inherently much more resistant to any minor lumps and bumps that could get into your recordings. Aston are so confident that they put a direct stand mount on the base of the mic so that you don't need any sort of mic clip or external shock mount. Of course you can still use a shock mount if you feel more confident using one.
